So call me an idiot for still having hope, but i want to know about this. From what i heard, 002-0102 error has historically been 15 days. Now there are a lot of reasons to believe that it's permanent this time, but can someone confirm this? I think December 1st is 15 days after the first ban was given out. Has anyone checked if this error still happens? P.S. i know about the 2 3ds's method, just want to know if i can avoid buying a new one.
